4th Six Weeks Resources for 8th Grade Parents at LMS

"I Want to Help My Student, But It's Not What I Learned When I was in School...."

Here you will find resources that will help you talk to your student about what they are learning in school. You don't need to know what everything means or even the answer to the questions, just start asking them SPECIFIC questions about the content (TEKS) they are learning in each of their core classes.


If you need more help, contact your student's teacher. They are ready and willing to help!
